– where community, cycling, and local businesses unite!
Get ready to pedal your way through the heart of our vibrant community with the Tour de West, brought to you by the Community Bike Hub.
What is the Tour de West?
Run by the Community Bike Hub, a not-for-profit that is more than just a bike shop. They keep over 1500 bikes per year from landfill, recycling them or refurbishing them for donation to refugees and asylum seekers, alongside this we run an education program with Footscray High and deliver community initiatives in partnership with Maribyrnong City Council. The Tour de West is not just a bike ride; it’s an experience that celebrates community, cycling, and our beautiful neighborhood. Every fortnight, set off from the Moreland St store on a new adventure through the diverse landscape of the west.
What makes it special?
All-Inclusive: Cyclists of all levels are welcome. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or just dusting off your old bike, you’re guaranteed some fun!
Community connection: It’s more than a ride; it’s a chance to connect with your neighbors and make new friends who share your passion for cycling and this beautiful community we call home
Support local: Each tour ends at a different local business, promoting community engagement and supporting our local economy.
